Wife of the former Shakhtar’s player Luiz Adriano, now playing in Brazil for Palmeiras, Russian Ekaterina Dorozhko told what she had to face after her marriage to a Brazilian.
“When I started going to football matches in Brazil, the fans were screaming: “Look, the Russian is coming!” For a long time, I was receiving disgusting messages every day. I was threatened with death, wished that my parents had fallen ill, and promised to find me and beat. I had to experience the horror only because I married a black man. Well, I am very strong mentally and eventually just stopped paying attention to such messages.”
“I am grateful to my parents vaccinated me the ability to appreciate each. I would never discriminate against people by skin color, hair or social status. We are all people. Half of my family is now black and I love them very much. I was afraid that I was repelled, because I’m Russian, I have a different mentality, etc. I don’t understand why the world is so cruel. Love and friendship are not divided by skin color. If heaven and hell exist, hell is here on earth. I dream that all the people are more polite and wise, because the future depends on us”, – told track.
Recall that Luiz Adriano married Catherine Dorozhko last year. The girl’s 10 years younger than their partner.
